Updates regarding the national Girl Scout Cookie Shortage


Dear Cookie Selling Communities, 

As you may have heard from stateside councils and volunteers, Little Brownie Bakers (LBB) is experiencing national supply chain disruptions. The good news is that this will not impact our cookie orders for in-person sales. Communities that ordered cookies this fall (for United States Virgin Islands, this winter) should receive their full order as scheduled. Unfortunately, supply chain disruptions will impact digital cookie sales – which are shipped directly from LBB to the customer. LBB anticipates fulfillment of shipped Digital Cookie orders beginning February 27, 2023. 

In response to these LBB disruptions, USASGO will still launch Digital Cookie as planned on February 3 for booth pickup, donation, and mobile orders; however, delays will be present in the direct Digital Cookie orders shipped from LBB to consumers (available beginning February 27). Until February 27, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) will modify the Digital Cookie platform, informing customers when they order, that shipping is not currently available. On/After February 27, 2023, the Digital Cookie system will update to include a shipping delivery option. 

We are working with GSUSA to provide troops and girls with resources and marketing assets to mitigate the impact on our customers. Prior to February 27, we encourage girls within in-person selling communities to contact friends, family, and customers for booth pickup, donation, and mobile orders. After February 27, girls may contact non-local customers needing cookies shipped directly. 

Digital Cookie sales will end on March 19 as originally scheduled. Communities interested in extending sales until April 10, may elect to do so by filling out THIS FORM by March 10, 2023. Note: if your community opts to extend, rewards and invoicing will take up to two weeks to process after the extended sales end. 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes to our communities. We know that cookie sales are critical when funding Girl Scout programs, and we at USAGSO and GSUSA are working hard with LBB to ensure a successful season for our girls. As always, we know that these proceeds are necessary to power amazing experiences year-round for Girl Scouts all over the world.
